Remember I told you that the satirical mass shooter would become a serious problem?
Here's the third.
He had no real beliefs. His entire life--as it were--was based on social media memes and jokes.
A mass shooting was the ultimate troll.
At least this time he was killed before he could hurt anyone else.
@ThomasWic It amazes me that not a single soul thought, Wow, Brian has problems, we should keep an eye on him. Are these people so isolated that no one sees they are about to go off the deep end?
That's part of it, and the other part is that troll culture is now mainstream.
So you can say whatever you want, and people will chuckle and move on to the next meme or satirical comment.
@DuaneCates @ThomasWic @DonnaLea exactly, it is not about guns and weapons it's about Mental Health. It is virtually impossible to commit someone against their will. Any good sociopath knows exactly how to act once they are caught. Professionals are very apathetic because they know there is nothing they can do. They know they can only hold them for a short amount of time and then they have to release them. They can only hold on to them after they have hurt someone which is unbelievably stupid
Staff at the highschool had said amongst themselves, if that ever happens here, it will be Nick Cruz. When he blended into the kids streaming down a hall, a girl acquaintance remarked to Nick that she was "surprised he was not the shooter". Multiple people called the cops and the FBI on his dangerous behavior. But he was still left to march across campus with a long bag in his hand. With school cameras on delay setting. How's Russia?
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
